I use Aramis surface products. Try the Healty Look Gel, it will give your face some color that looks natural, plus it washes off easily.

I use Flash Bronzer Gel from Lancome and sometimes Streak Free Bronzer from Clinique. The Lancome product is a translucent gel that darkens your skin several minutes after it's applied and doesn't wash off. The Clinique product is a traditional bronzer that washes off.

Aramis' Healthy Look Gel will give a natural color which is what color? It will blend into the color of my skin or film my face with streak of natural-looking tan?

It will give the color naturally acquired while tanning, a slight bronze look (shade depends on how much you put on). It definalty won't look orange or streak if that's what you're worried about. I'd suggest you pick up a sample and try it out.

Sunless tanning works through a process of DHA, which is a sort of coloring approved by the FDA. It has been around for about 50 years. Farmers used to put it on fruits and vegetables to make them appear riper for market. We have been consuming it for a long time. It takes a couple of hours to make the skin appear tanned. Generally speaking it lasts about 4-6 days in the mountains or 7-9 days in a place with high humidity before it begins to wear off.


If you make a mistake, a self tanner has to wear off (unless you really want to dry the skin). If you act immediately, you can use a towel or sponge, but once on you it's very hard get rid of. I haven't found anything that will strip it off immediately. You should see my hands sometimes

I've heard very good things about the tanning sprays that are now on the market. You can even have it done at a salon (which might be a good idea if you concern is even application.)

I'd recommend the Lancome, though I can't attest to how safe it is. Probably safer than UVA and UVB, though.

I only use St Tropez Auto Bronzant Lotion. It just gives me the nicest skin tone. I would never use anything else. IMO nothing else even compares.
